Other government dignitaries expected at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Saturday are the Chairmen of the Senate and House Committees on Sports, Senator Obinna Ogba and Hon.

Victory for Nigeria on Saturday in Uyo will book the country their ticket to next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Super Eagles can clinch a place in Russian Federation with a win over visiting Zambia on Saturday. I'm confident that we will get the desired result because the handlers know what they want and they know how to get the result.

The other mini-leagues, topped by the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, can not be decided after the penultimate series of matches, whatever the results.

The team which touched down at the Abuja Airport early hour of yesterday and spent night at Chelsea Hotel will be heading to Uyo this morning, in readiness for Saturday's mega World Cup qualifying encounter.

Nigeria ended up with a four-goal victory against the Indomitable Lions in a game played on Friday, September 1. "Our team has shown professionalism, dedication and determination to be in this position", captain John Obi Mikel said. We are ready to win.

A home victory over Zambia - a side they beat away at the start of the group phase - will be enough to see Nigeria return to the finals after reaching the second round in Brazil in 2014. I believe though in my teammates, I believe in the Super Eagles. Zambia has introduced some of the African youth championship-winning team with good effect.
